Saint Kassiani the Hymnologist - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st309-2921]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Kassiani the Hymnologist.

Saint Kassiani the Hymnologist was born in Constantinople around 810 AD, during the reign of Theophilos. During her upbringing, she received an education and distinguished herself in melodies, which made her well-known and respected in hymnography.

He wrote many church hymns and troparia, which are sung to this day with great devoutness.

Saint Kassiani passed away peacefully in the island of Kasos. Her holy relic was kept in a marble urn in a chapel of Kasos, until its transfer to the island of Ikaria.


Hymn of Kassiani

Lord, when the woman who had fallen into many sins perceived Your divinity, she assumed the role of a myrrh-bearing woman, and lamenting brought fragrant oils to anoint You before Your burial.

"Woe is me," she says.

"Night for me is a frenzy without restraint, very dark and moonless, a sinful love-affair.

Accept the fountains of my tears, You who draw out from the clouds the water of the sea.

Take pity on me, and incline to the sighing of my heart, You who bowed the heavens by Your ineffable self-emptying.

I shall cover Your unstained feet with kisses, and wipe them dry again with the locks of my hair; those feet, whose sound at twilight in Paradise echoed in Eve's ears, and she hid in fear.

Who can reckon the multitude of my sins, or fathom the depths of Your judgments, O my life-saving Savior?

Do not despise me, Your servant, since without measure is Your mercy."


The Icon of Saint Kassiani the Hymnologist is an exact copy of Byzantine art and is created by experienced craftsmen using the method of gold printing where hagiographic leaves of 22 karat gold are applied in detail to decorate the background.

During the final processing, the icon is painted with dark red color around the perimeter and polished with a special varnish to maintain its shine.

It is offered in level or recessed wooden surface and is suitable for wall mounting.
